G. D. Maxwell, a writer for "Pique Newsmagazine" based in
Whistler, British Columbia, commented on the upcoming elections
But noooooo. He [John Van Dongen, former solicitor-general] loses
his job over speeding tickets. Oh the moral turpitude. And get this,
Two-Martini [British Columbia Premier Gordon] Campbell, accepting the
resignation and saying he'll now screen the driving records of future
solicitors-general, has the incredible bad taste to say, "I think it
is important for the s-g to set an example. I think it's important
for all of us to try to do that." When Mr. Mug-Shot can say that with
a straight face, I'm more convinced than ever the Firesign Theater
are running things. For those of you completely unfamiliar with
Firesign Theater, punch 'em into YouTube and have fun. Hint: You
might try imbibing in a bit of the main plank of the Marijuana
Party's platform first.
As it turns out, there really IS a Firesign connection,
as explained by Phil Proctor himself:
Good grief!!! He's talking about my daughter's father-in-law,
Gordon Campbell, who is running for re-election as Premier of British
Columbia! Kristin and Geoff are up in Vancouver helping him right now.
One of his party members had to be fired because he was caught
speeding and Gord's political enemies, like this jerk, are still
harping on the fact that Gordon was arrested years ago on Maui (where
the whole family celebrates Christmas every year.) for DUI.
He's been sober ever since and this is a very unfair rap. ~ Philip
And Phil sent along a couple of article links about
the election, one featuring his son-in-law Geoff:
Papoon for Premier! He's NOT INSANE!
